With all this chatter about the new game, some of you may have overlooked the news about The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons coming to Virtual Console May 30.
In case you just missed out on these Game Boy Color classics, I am going to give you a brief rundown on what to expect and why they are worth playing.
The first reason they are worth playing; they are Zelda games. If that’s not quite enough to convince you, these games are unique within the Zelda franchise. They are actually meant to be played together, one after the other, with no priority on which one is played first. They use a password system that gives you passwords in one game to unlock items, upgrades, and other secrets in the other game.
In Oracle of Ages, Link approaches the triforce in its sacred resting place. When he does, the triforce sends him to a foreign land that needs the hero’s help. In Ages, that land is Labrynna and the oracle in danger is Nayru, the Oracle of Ages. In Seasons, Link is sent to the land of Holodrum to help Din, the Oracle of Seasons.
If not, you can get them both for around $40 on eBay. Whichever way you decide to go, I hope you give these games a try.
